The killer of PSNI Constable Stephen Carroll will wed behind bars today, it can be revealed.

Dissident republican Brendan McConville will marry English fiancée Siobhan Monaghan in a small ceremony inside Maghaberry prison .

Around 10 guests - including McConville's Continuity IRA accomplice John Paul Wootton - will attend the jail nuptials, which sources say will involve a "high level of security".

The pair struck up a romance after Siobhan (49) began writing letters to the CIRA killer from her home in Oxford, England.

She has made regular trips to Northern Ireland to visit McConville, who is locked up in the high security prison's Roe 4 dissident wing.

She has posted images of the pair taken in the visiting area of the Lisburn prison to social media.
